School-based programs for children to tackle harmful social and gender norms that contribute to girls dropping out of school early
We create awareness of the rights of young boys and girls, promote agency, talk about education for girls in India, develop negotiation skills and encourage inter-gender and inter-generational dialogues on the issues that most affect them.
We help build agency, develop aspirations through career counselling and conduct sessions on sexual and reproductive health to break myths and taboos
Shifting norms and deep-rooted practised require us to work with parents, teachers, frontline health workers, and PRI members
Breakthrough makes gender-based violence, particularly violence and discrimination against women and girls, unacceptable by transforming the culture that permits violence. We work with adolescents in schools and communities to mould gender norms and beliefs before they solidify into behaviour. This creates a generational shift so that a culture of equality, dignity and justice can emerge.Donate
Breakthrough’s work with nearly 1.5 million adolescents helps them build their capacity to push against norms that hinder them by fostering aspiration, leadership, agency and negotiation skills. Through this, an entire generation is shifting towards an enabling, gender-equal culture that finds gender-based violence unacceptable.
Our mission is led by young people aged 11 to 25. As they rise against gender-based violence, we also support their journeys with media tools that shape public narratives and inspire people to envision a world of equality, dignity and justice.
